Project Description

Using QMail/VPOPMail as the comparative example, we are looking to have a SMTP/MTA server built which has all of the typical features QMail has with a minor addition: Sender and Recipient are to be checked against a MySQL database. Different "rules" will apply for each query to be made which will be disclosed after NDA is signed. 1. When FROM is received, check the database for black-listed accounts. If sender is listed, return 55x or similar error at the RCPT command. 2. When RCPT is received, check the database for (1) Is the user account valid (2) If not valid, is there a catch-all account created (3) Additional rules disclosed once the project is accepted. The test environments are going to be RH/FC and possibly Debian and BSD. Machines are going to be x86 and x86-64, the spec file should test for the foundation, display which type is found and compile accordingly. (RH-RPMs are intended to be built.)
